Thanks for the feedback/help Terry.

I had a feeling this thread would be moved to this section :)

FYI, Map 8 on firmware 32/9//2 definitely doesn't target zero boost. Since I've got a broken...

Attached is an impromptu 'highway onramp 3rd gear pull' - 2500rpm to 5500rpm WOT in 3rd with Map 6 targeting 0psi.

Any risk using the JB4 to set lower than OEM boost levels (or zero boost)

Can anyone envisage any harm that could be done to a N54 by using Map 6 targeting 0psi at all revs to essentially disable the turbos?

I've got a wastegate stuck open in my Daily driver, and would...

Is Map 8 still N/A mode (target zero boost) with the current firmware (N54 G5 ISO)?

I'm pretty confident the wastegate in one of my two turbos is stuck open; so I'd like to force the second one open at all times to avoid overworking the remaining functioning turbo.

Yes. But once you go to stage 3, you're never likely to want to flash back to Stage 1; so it's not a big issue (for most people).

dead easy, plug in the MHD and click "flash back to stock".

It grabs the latest DME image from MHD's servers and flashes your ECU - you don't need your local backup.
